Egyptian statues were “built” in several ways – some small statues were carved from a single block of stone or wood, but more commonly statues were composites in which different parts of the statue were made from separate blocks and sometimes of different materials. The famous bust of Nefertiti is thought to have been a study for the bust portion of a composite statue. The really huge megalithic statues were either carved from the living rock or were carved from assemblages of large stones.
